On Thursday, January 28, Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson attended Ocean Drive Magazine's 23rd Anniversary Party in Miami, Florida. Benson is no stranger to the red carpet and knows just what works for the cameras, which means she usually sticks to her signature hairstyles of loose waves and sleek ponytails. You can imagine how surprised we were then, to see her rocking this textured braided updo on Thursday evening! Was this Little Liar inspired by her co-star Lucy Hale?
We at Get the Look loved this hairstyle so much we immediately stalked Benson's hairstylist, Kylee Heath, on Instagram to see if we could get a better look...

Do you love Ashley's romantic textured braids as well? Then follow our simple tutorial to get the look...
Starting with dry hair, mist plenty of texturizing spray throughout your locks and then use your fingers to softly back comb your hair - this look actually welcomes frizz so the more texture you create, the better!
Use a tail comb to create a center part and then start French braiding your hair on the left side. Continue adding hair to both sides as you go until you reach the back and then just braid as normal down the ends. Secure the end with a clear elastic.
Repeat step two on the right side and secure the end. Then criss-cross the braids at the back so that the ends are under the French braided section on each side. Insert bobby pins throughout to keep your breads in place.
Use your fingers to gently tug on the braids to give them more volume, then tease the braids with a tootbrush for more frizzy texture.
Finish with a mist of hairspray to complete the look!
